Seller’s Market

There is no doubt that Park Ridge and the surrounding area is seeing a true seller’s market. If you are the seller, this is a great position to be in for many reasons:

  • You will most-likely see multiple offers for your home
  • You can pick the buyer that is most-ready to close
  • You will hopefully get more for your home than you asked for
  • You should be able to sell your home quicker in a seller’s market
  • Real estate inventory levels are low
  • Rent is getting more expensive
  • It’s Real Estate Season

If you are the buyer in a seller’s market, here are some points to consider as you look for your new home:

  • Make sure you are looking at new homes immediately as they come on the market (other shoppers will be doing this)
  • Get Pre-Qualified before looking at any homes
  • Be aggressive with your offer if you find something you like
  • Do not try to over-negotiate with your seller – they may choose another buyer
  • Be ready to move (get your quotes for movers)
  • Don’t settle for a home you don’t want (even if you feel pressured to just buy a home, don’t buy it for that reason)
  • Be flexible with your time if possible (you have to act quickly in a seller’s market)

If you have any questions about how to successfully buy or sell a home in a seller’s market – please feel free to call/email me with your needs.


It’s coming!

It has to be Spring because we are going to crack 70 degrees this week – The Cubs and Sox start their seasons in the next couple days and real estate activity is starting to pick up again.  The weather really does have an impact on Real Estate, certainly in our part of the country.  The National Association of REALTORS issued their latest report stating that the weather had impacted showings last month.  Flip that to our recent weather and things are looking better for Real Estate. 

We haven’t heard much about extending the tax credit yet, but there will be a flurry of activity this month to try and meet the 4/30 deadline.  Here’s to Spring!!!
